hit the track

Track Thursday!

Ah, my first track workout in months! (My IT band is just now letting me run seriously again, after two months of whining! thank you!)

The route? 2 miles warm up. 7×800. 400 recovery. 2 mile cool down.

6×800 m = run twice (i.e., 800 m) around the track, 6 times. between each trip, do a lap (i.e., 400 m) recovery.

I also recommend listening to this while doing so:

Cut Copy- Far Away

Fun fact about 800 m runs: they’re magical! According to Yasso, your 800 m pace is a very good indicator of your marathon pace. Your 800 m track time is roughly your marathon time converted into minutes instead of hours, give or take 10. So, if you run an 03:30 800 m dash, you would probably finish a marathon around 3 hours 40 minutes. A 4 minute 800? You’ll run the marathon around 4 hours 10 minutes.

Numbers are nice but nature is better!

A nice start to the day, and I’m looking forward to the end: hot yoga and wine night!

Happy Thursday, from my friend and co-track runner Kenny.
